While I am enjoying my time doing litigation (especially getting working people some compensation for the daily harms dealt to them by modern consumer finance), my real passion is governmental regulation. I was advised that if I want to return to that work, I should try to get published writing about relevant regulation. In that vein, I submitted a paper proposal on a democratic theory of economic regulation to the upcoming ClassCrits XII Conference (ClassCrits is a network of academics and activists focused on economic justice), and it was accepted!
Unfortunately fighting for working people is not the most profitable line of work, especially when you have to make hefty payments on student loans every month. So I am asking for help from you - colleagues, comrades, and friends who I know share my vision of a new and more democratic economy. As much as I would love to present my own work, I also want to meet other more experienced legal advocates and scholars who share my focus on economic justice who I can learn from.
I would ask you to donate $20 if able to cover the cost of registration and transportation to the Conference. If I am lucky enough to raise more than the $280 that I am asking for, it will go to cover the cost of the hotel room for the weekend.
